Beef and Barley Soup

I've stopped taking so many pictures of the food I make because I make some damn unattractive food. In fact, just the other day, I cooked two meals that looked incredibly unappetizing. One was soggy and pink and the other was sticky and green/yellow. They tasted great, of course, but looked awful. 

I don't think that this is a beef and barley soup is one of those dishes. This one actually looks really good. I made  this by referencing Picky Palate and Laura in the Kitchen.



I highly recommend visiting those links up above if you're feeling like a warm hearty soup. I made way too much for one person and ended up eating this for a very, very long time. The surprising thing is, after all that time, I still enjoyed it.

  2. Ooo, I love beef and barley soup. My mom used to make a potful, and there was always enough left over for at least a week. This soup is great for lazy people, since you only have to cook one pot, and then not have to again for a while!

    About unattractive food, I totally know what you mean. Happens to me all the time! I'm always like, "Let's Instagram this! Oh, wait... never mind." Haha!

  11. I am totally into hearty soups and stews right now, so thanks for the links. I know what you mean about not posting some food pics though, sometimes they may not look like much - but as long as it tastes good, right?
